The BBC doesn't do all that good a job covering Brazil. There's a huge political crisis here due to the corruption scandal. Today there's a massive protest planned against corruption, but in support of the PT government.

Tomorrow, there's an anti-corruption, anti-PT protest planned which is likely to be even larger. Lot's of political groups are getting together for this.

Last night I recorded two hours of interview with Hilan and Edgardo to try to get the whole story including context like Lula's background and the history of the PT.

Still haven't got everything on the scandal, but I'll try to get it up soon. Hope the BBC will say something about all this soon.
